$60 for a used sport coat is way too much. For that price, it would need to be something way above BB in terms of quality.

Edit: Didn't realize it was NWT. Even so, still way too much money.

The reason that I say that you shouldn't cop and the reason Eazy E says "not even for yourself" is because that is too much money for a Harris Tweed SC--even if it is NWT made in Italy for BB. Unlike some other people in this thread, I love Harris tweed and own a couple. But if you thrift often enough, you'll be turning those things down left and right for under $10. And they don't usually flip too well. I learned from experience. Don't repeat my mistakes! Good luck!

Thanks everyone. I think I'm guilty of going a little wacky when I see NWT stuff.

I'll pass even though I like it personally.

There are a bunch of NWT colorful VV cords here if anyone interested in proxy.

wow, the tweed must be plentiful for you guys, but it's loved in japan as much as jap denims in the states.   (don't say i never gave a flip tip.)

Money spent.
Cherries popped.
Shells collected.
Grails (for my area) found.
Feet tired.


You took the words right out of my mouth from last night, except I was too tired to actually post.

I hit a consignment shop on my way to meeting friends for drinks. Hit it incredibly fast, but still ended up with some mind blowing stuff (and a mind blowing credit card charge to go with it). Details a bit later.
